Rob Lowe set out to prove he's no scaredy-cat when he came up with the premise for his weird new TV show by spending the night in America's most haunted house.

The actor and his sons are the stars of the upcoming A&E show "The Lowe Files," which focuses on America's creepiest locations, folklore and myths - and to prove he and the boys were up for anything they agreed to check out a real ghost fest.

"We go to the most haunted location in the United States and spend the night there on the show," he tells WENN. "It's like legitimately, 'If you can be in Scooby Doo for real, would you do it?' And the answer is Yes!"

Rob admits the idea for the TV series has been simmering for years: "We as a family have always been into spooky campfire stories and ghost stories. We watched 'Ancient Aliens,' 'Finding Bigfoot' and wonder if it's real or not real. These are all supernatural, freaky stories."

The Lowes go off in search of Bigfoot in the series.
